New director allegedly messed up.

Garth Jerome is among a group of personnel named in a document forming the basis of the search warrant executed in November. In that 140-page document, the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals details hundreds of allegations against THS administration, many pertaining to former president Tim Trow.

Citing an interview with a staff doctor, one item alleges Mr. Jerome – who was a microbiologist at the time before being promoted to facilities manager late last year – improperly treated kittens at the shelter.

“It was discovered that in order to facilitate the ease of kitten feeding, that sick kittens had been mixed in with the healthy kittens at the direction of microbiologist Garth Jerome, thereby placing the healthy kittens at risk of disease,” the warrant document alleges.

“Many kittens in fact became infected and some died… The decision to mix sick and healthy kittens [was] taken without consultation with veterinary staff,” the document continues, noting many kittens were found in the room “sick, dehydrated and suffering.”
